Air power may not in itself be sufficient to win a war, but when it is combined with infantry, armor and naval power, can help achieve victories. Need I remind you of the part US air power played in World War II? (There were massive Japanese casualties in Hiroshima and Nagasaki - are the Japanese today enemies of the US?. So don't make generalizations) Or of the fact that it was the Israeli Air Force's knockout blow on the Egyptian Air Force in June 1967 that enabled a stunning Israeli victory? One of Israel's mistakes in the Second Lebanon War was that it didn't immediately, or almost immediately, lauch a well-planned major ground offensive in coordination with the air strike.
